    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yep she's great eh! Just got the first pay so keen to buy some projectiles and make up more bombs. Hopefully ebf and I will hit the range again this week to chuck a few rounds through the forum chrony. We've gone and killed some targets once so far, it was good fun. Ebf's russian b*tch scares me though

    Svetlana the russian is mild, I took Mathilda the ausie girl up there this morning, she packs a REAL punch

    Steven, I'm a member at Kaitoke, so if you want to zero at 100 or 200 just pm me. You will meet Mathilda tomorrow

    Yeah I had that range as a possibility someone else mentioned it 35min drive each way though. 200m would be OK I think, beggars cant be choosers. Whats the cost to join kaitoke? doh yet another membership....2 so far...so $265 next year...so far...



    Im just looking for options right now but there is no way load developemnt can be done at Trentham, I need to shoot 100~200 rounds not 20.

    Mathilda, Im scoring down in the butts in the 2nd and 3rd 3rds so bring her over pre-2.20pm.



    What are you loading her with? I would think UH could sell you 100 ~ 250 rounds of Nosler 155gr plama quite cheaply, 2208 as well? you can but ask. Whats her twist btw? probably 1 in 13 so she might spit those 155s very well. Im eyeing the Sierra 155gr #2156 but thats $1 a go, but less drop and less wind effect on it....but twice the price.



    I'll intro you to the guy who also shoots one, pick his brains...

    [QUOTE=ebf;91721]1:14, so light short pills for me, 140/144/155

    Ive shot the 140s and they were terrible in the wind at Trentham at 500 and 600 yds so 155s Id suggest. No reason that you cant try heavier either it will either work or not. There is another omark for sale as bits on Trademe, looks like it has a SS barrel might be work a look.

    Omark 7.62x51 | Trade Me

    c u about 130pm

    regards
